I have been a licensed driver since 1967, and I never cease to be amazed by the ignorance and poor driving skills exhibited by drivers.

Every day I see the same dangerous occurrence on Wicker Avenue in front of the Subway store in St. John. If you are northbound on Wicker and attempting to make a left turn to go west on Wall Street, please note the center lane is not a shared/bi-directional turning lane.

I suggest you revisit the rules of the road which are standardized across the country. Specifically, if the yellow line is on your right/passenger side and the white line is on your left, guess what? You are driving on the wrong side of the road!
